Abstract:

The investigation of inspection aids was performed to identify specific inspection requirements and recommend relatively small aids or indicators, current or conceptual, that will enhance the troubleshooting inspectionpreventive maintenance process for Army helicopters. Inspection requirements and procedures for six helicopter types AH-1, UH-1, CH-47, CH-54, OH-6, OH-58 were analyzed. Significant inspections were identified and the effectiveness and adequacy of presently used procedures and techniques was assessed. Areas where the inspector is highly dependent upon subjective judgment or cumbersome or ineffective procedures are employed were determined. Surveys of available off-the-shelf vendor aids and candidate conceptual inspection aids which offer improved inspection efficiency in these areas were performed.
